About the lesson
The focus is on you! I play the role of PT/coach rather than teacher/lecturer.
Main topic areas include technique, rhythm, ear training, transcription, theory, improvisation.
Strong believer in fundamental concepts such as learning styles not scales, walk before you run etc. which are documented in a full syllabus.
Remember the motto: Learn the instrument, learn the music.
It always works!
- Electric guitar
- Rock Guitar
Private tuition since 2015: offline in person and online students in Hong Kong, Canada, Dubai.
Music centres for 2 years: Roundhay Music, Distort Music, Calderdale Music Trust.

Of the 50+ students I have taught so far, most are adults at intermediate level. Some teenagers and children at beginner level.
Most notable achievements (aside from passing grades) include getting into music college to study at degree level, and running an online account to showcase and document progress!
Bryan is a great tutor and player, with a great understanding of jazz and pop and very easy to work with. He's calm, patient and excited about learning and teaching.
I fully appreciate his music teaching style since the learning is serious with good progress. Covers fundamentals of the instrument, knowing your way round the fretboard, and ear training development.
Great guitar tutor who offers one-to-one private tuition. In the lessons expect to learn a lot about music from the fundamentals and basics all the way to specialisation and mastery. Good for anyone looking to get into a solid learning routine!
He is a serious guitar tutor who helps you learn the basics before mastering a specific style. The music lessons are of good quality and always to a high standard, which makes learning very enjoyable and fun!
Worked with Bryan in recording sessions. He is a very experienced musician and guitarist who has the skill and knowledge to be able to deliver great results. Friendly and easy to work with
You can tell he is experienced in teaching since he is patient with my son's learning.
Effective system of practice routine which enhances the learning progress. Lessons are very helpful and suited to each individual's needs!
Systematic guitar teaching, great musicianship as well!

To all who are interested into learning how to play guitar.. Bryan’s the guy to go to!
Bryan is one of the most talented musicians I have met, his teaching style and methodology is very clear and easy to follow.
His lessons are structured and overall you learn so much about playing, I'd highly recommend him to any guitarist of any level. - Samuel

Played with Bryan over the course of two years and he is great to work with!
Bryan is a great player and teacher - versatile in style and playing, with a methodical approach to music. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Bryan!
Bryan is an excellent tutor with great musicianship and teaching skills. He makes learning music and guitar very intuitive and fun.
I like Bryan's teaching style being very versatile and tailored to the individual - not a 'one-size-fits-all' kind of approach. He uses effective methods to enhance the progress of students. Definitely recommend!
A few years ago we collaborated in producing music. This included arranging covers of songs and composing new original material. He contributed a lot musically and we had a good time!
Bryan is very passionate about teaching jazz and I am making great progress! Thanks!
I was learning classic rock and hard rock songs in the lessons. They were well-structured, and I really liked the planning of goals and targets so we both work towards something rather than just having a jam all the time.
Learning heavy rock guitar with Bryan has been a thrill! It has helped me progress onto metal music with the same knowledge and technique applied. Fully recommend his teaching!
Bryan is always dedicated to his job and has a good reputation on the local music scene. I would recommend him for anyone looking to learn music.
I learnt Jazz music with Bryan. During the lessons we worked on transcription and he helped me become a confident improviser. He is professional and very patient so I could learn at my own pace.
